2018 Geisel Medal Award Winner
Two brothers and four stories make a perfect early reader book for those who like a little bit of funny in their books.
Charlie and his little brother, Mouse, wake up one morning ready for action. Well, Charlie is ready for action and Mouse is still a lump in the bed. But not for long because today is the neighborhood picnic and they don't want to be late. Happiness is a positive attitude and that's what makes their world go round.
In the other three stories, the brothers decide to make money by selling rocks to their neighbors and then, at bedtime they introduce us all to the importance of a Bedtime Banana.
A couple of wild and crazy guys who gently but consistently find their way into trouble and right back out again.
